With a bunch of real fighters and motion controls that accurately replicate real-life boxing, it seems as though Don King Boxing would be a smashing success. But the action is just too dull. The punches lack any impact, making it seem like you're punching through a cloud instead of an angry man's face, and the close-up view makes it difficult to judge the distance to your opponent.
Even the addition of the balance board can't make the fights engaging, because it's just too sensitive to be a worthwhile alternative to the standard control scheme. If Don King Boxing had the energy of its outrageous spokesman, it could have been a contender, but in its sluggish current form, it's just another glass-jawed bum.
